For Business Owners
You’ve probably heard about the cloud and what it can do for your business. As a business owner, chances are you might not be sure whether or not moving to the cloud is right for your business. At ECXSystems, we’ve been doing migrations to the cloud for years and we know what it takes to be successful. We want to work with you to figure out if the cloud is a good idea, and how much of your systems we want to move to the cloud.
We believe in transparency, and we are going to make sure you have all the information and answers you need before making your decision.

Migrating to the cloud is a big job. If you have a small, in-house team, it could seem like a daunting task, but ECXSystems is here to provide any support necessary to get you and your team up to speed. We’ve been doing this for years, helping IT departments of any size successfully move to the cloud and have the knowledge and skills necessary to maintain their systems.
We’re here to support you and your team. Making a successful move to the cloud not only makes for a happy client, it makes you look great as an IT Professional.
Commonly Asked Questions About Cloud Migration
How Much Will This Cost?
Everyone’s business is different. While we can’t give you an exact number that applies to everyone, we can tell you that we will do everything we can to ensure that no matter what, your cost is kept to a minimum.
From only moving certain aspects of your systems to the cloud to a full migration, we have the experience necessary to make sure that everything is handled in the most cost-effective way possible.
How Much Effort Will This Take?
A lot of people are under the assumption that moving to the cloud is going to make things simpler. Or, in other words, you can downsize your IT staff. This is simply not true.
You still need your full IT staff to manage your systems and work alongside the cloud engineers to ensure that all systems are running as smoothly as possible.
What if I Change My Mind?
When ECXSystems helps you with your migration, we engineer your systems to make any necessary transitions as smooth as possible. If you are not ready to fully committ to the cloud, we can only move part of your systems and make sure that you have a way out if you decide to transition back.
We believe in personal accountability, in the question behind the question, or QBQ. We will work with you to find quality answers before they bite anyone in their budget.
